Thought I’d give this a try one morning and was really surprised how the tofu actually tasted like real scrambled eggs. Admittedly what we served it on wasn’t the healthiest. Fried Potato Scones, as we call them in Scotland, or potato cakes here in Yorkshire. I think in the good old US of A, they are like a Jewish potato pancakes. They are my guilty pleasure for breakfast on a weekend and an easy cook up, for when we are away in our camper van. They are the only thing I ask my parents to bring when they visit us. You can get them locally in some shops, but just not the same. Anyway, as they say you can take the girl out of Scotland, but not Scotland out of the girl. Of course, they have to be fried in coconut oil these days.
These are sweets that actually taste like a bounty (Mound bar In the US), but healthy, which for a husband that loves bounties, is a major win.
In a recent race of his, when he was flagging at 30 miles, I sneaked a bounty bar into his bag on a bottle swap at a checkpoint. Apparently, when found, he reacted like he had actually WON the race. Anyway, enough said, it was time to create a healthy version and an alternative race fuel for my boy.
Out of all the recipes I cook, or should I say, attempt to cook, this is by far one of my favourites. It’s the only meal I make that I’ll clear my plate on and monkeychops gets no extras, much to his disappointment. Like most of the meals I make this is really easy.
These rolls are jammed packed with vitamins, raw, and bursting with flavour, like really. Don’t be put off by the seemingly extensive list of ingredients, most are used to make a dressing and the rest are the raw veggies and noodles. Measurements are also a rough guide and really depend on your preferred tastes. Continue reading “Rice Paper & Raw Veg Spring Rolls”
Beetroot over the years seems to have been banished to the back of the fridge in an out of date pickled jar, or found cubed in random supermarket salads. Not in this house I tell you, not in this house. I make brownies with it, houmous, stews and risottos. Ive got to be honest I don’t ever roast my own, unless my allotment wielding neighbour has a surplus. Roasting your own does taste great, but it takes far too long to cook and always seems to stay on the wrong side of hard for me. So shop bought, unpickled it is.
Ok. My picture for this might not be the best, but it really is no reflection on how awesome this tastes. It proper tastes like a full fat, creamy, coconutty, sumptuous cheesecake and the best bit….it involves no cooking. Yes, it’s raw. I’m not a raw food expert (yet) but, the sheer mention of raw food, seems to have people running for the hills, apart from my faithful food testing husband ( or the “monkeyboy” as he is known). Every dish I make seems to be his favourite, like ever.
